Living is easy in Legacy — and not only in the summertime.
This community in Calgary’s southeast blends the best of idyllic, rural living with essential urban conveniences. Whether you love walking through unspoiled green spaces without having to get in your car, appreciate an easy commute to both the mountains and downtown, or are simply searching for a well-planned community with great amenities and thoughtfully designed homes, Legacy has something for you.
Here are five reasons to love living in Legacy.
Pristine nature is at your doorstep
Residents don’t have to venture far to feel like they’ve escaped the city for the wilderness. The Woods in Legacy, the sub-community located in the middle of Legacy, sits within an established and protected forest, filled with decades-old aspen trees. But this isn’t the only green space in the community. A 300-acre, developer-protected nature reserve surrounds Legacy. In fact, it’s possible to walk from one end of Legacy to the other without leaving this greenspace, thanks to a walking path that skirts the community’s perimetre.
Countless trails and outdoor amenities
Within Legacy, enjoy five different parks with a variety of playgrounds, grassy areas and basketball hoops, not to mention a community garden. Just outside Legacy are even more options for nature-lovers and outdoor-enthusiasts. The hiking, biking and running trails in Fish Creek Provincial Park are just a 10-minute drive away, while trails to the south in Pine Creek Valley provide even more options for relaxing wanders. Golfers are spoiled for choice when it comes to nearby courses: four courses are just a few kilometres away, including Blue Devil Golf Club and Heritage Pointe Golf Club. In other words, it’s easy to escape the bustle of everyday life and enjoy some tranquility.
Incredible views and easy mountain escapes
Whether you’re looking for the perfect first home, interested in finding more space for your growing family or you’re ready to downsize, homes in Legacy are thoughtfully designed for every stage of life. They’re constructed by dedicated, experienced builders including Jayman Built, Sterling Homes, Morrison Homes, Trico Homes and WestCreek Homes — together named a finalist in the Show Home Parade of the Year category for the 2022 BILDCR Awards. It’s a bonus that these homes are located in a community with unobstructed mountain views. And Legacy’s proximity to highway 22X makes adventures to the foothills and the Rockies close by. It’s only 20 minutes to Priddis, about half an hour to Bragg Creek and just over an hour to Kananaskis, which makes for easy getaways.
Four bustling shopping districts
While the views and access to nature can make Legacy feel like an idyllic countryside community, the lifestyle is anything but remote. The community boasts four distinct shopping districts, totalling more than 1.7 million square feet of shopping, services and restaurants. The largest commercial district is Township, Legacy’s community hub which already has more than 11 dining options, including The Canadian Brewhouse and Edo Japan, as well as everyday retailers like Sobeys, PetSmart and Winners. With essential services in Township, as well as the three other districts — Legacy Grove, Legacy Village and Legacy Corner — residents are only steps from what they need.
Easy access for work and school
While life in Legacy means peaceful solitude in nature and convenient amenities at your doorstep, visits to the city centre are also easy. Whether you commute downtown for work or like to enjoy an evening at Arts Commons or an inner-city restaurant, getting there from Legacy is easy. With quick access to Macleod Trail, you can drive to the downtown core in less than 30 minutes. Similarly, getting to school is simple in Legacy with the recently opened All Saints High School and a K-9 school under construction.
